Take Action: File Complaints with NJ Transit Buses

Every weekday afternoon our neighborhood is overrun by New Jersey Transit buses: they congest our streets, block our crosswalks, and ruin our quality of life. This problem is not just a nuisance it is a pedestrian safety issue.

We have reached out to the NYPD for assistance and have seen little improvement. It’s time for us to take a different approach, and the first step is to begin filing formal complaints with New Jersey Transit. Every time you witness a New Jersey Transit bus creating an unsafe traffic condition file a complaint on the NJT website

NJT bus Information
Be sure to include the date and time of the incident, the route and bus number, and as much detail as possible, the form also allows you to include an attachment, so take pictures. Keep track of the complaint information in case its needed at a later date. You can log the complaint # in the comments section of this post . The more complaints we lodge with New Jersey Transit the stronger our case will be when we request assistance from New Jersey Transit and our elected officials in finally resolving this dangerous situation. So start filing complaints and share this information with your networks.

    bUS RTE 27, BUS DRIVER 40154, BUS NBR 5625 OR 5624

    I am not a resident of Newark however, I am employed in the city . Went to the bank during lunch borrowing my coworkers bus card . On my way back from Santander on William and Broad streets. I made my way to the bus stop nest to Marriott Hotel . I ran to the bus stop which is kinda in front of the Newark finance office 828 Broad St. The bus drove right by mean and stopped and let passengers off in front of 810 Broad St. The indigo Hotel at the traffic light. This made me have to run farther and faster because light was green and wasn’t going to wait.. I asked the driver I’m not sure why you didn’t stop for me and he said that is not the bus stop I bee driving the bus for 20 yrs . I stated sir this is not the bus stop I have caught the bus before at the designated bus stop with a booth and seating . So I’m asking the bus driver questions not trying to argue and he made me ask the question more than once before he would answer and since there was an issue with the bus stop I asked what is the next stop which where I wanted to get off at and he didn’t want to tell me although I pushed the stop request button he finally yelled at me with a general answer . not pleasant not nice I’m not even sure I was dealing with a public service worker . Just rude and discourteous. 20 years of service and this is the product results. YOU- NJ Transit should be ashamed . I am not old and I unfortunately loss my mom in 5/2018 and it just made me reflect on her difficulties as and aged individual using public transportation . This driver surely should know better and should be called to the carpet for his madness…. He wouldn’t not be able to do this in an affluent area they would not stand for it and we shouldn’t either.. so appalling!!! THIS IS A GAME TO THE DRIVERS MAKE PEOPLE RUN AND JUST MISTREAT FOR NO REAL REASON

    Maybe if they would stop only hiring minorities they would perform better.

    Newark Penn station needs intense cleaning, the homeless situation in the bus line is becoming unbearable, you can’t breathe waiting for your bus in Newark due to the abhor sent of the homeless in the station. Something need to be done. Its unacceptable, iam getting tired of not being able to breathe in the station, it smells like dead carcass. It’s unsanitary and we should not be paying for this kind of service.

  6. Nadine Mells says:

    I waited an hour for the 72 bus that never showed up. It was very dangerous at the Broadway terminal in Paterson. The 11;20, 11:50, 12:20 bus to Newark Penn Station never showed up. Its on the schedule. The station wa closed could not get any information at all. This is not right. If you going to schedule routes you should let me know.

    I have file 3 Complaints and each time your reply, that it will be sent the supervisor. The 168 bus is the only bus I can take to and from work. This morning 3/27/2019 the bus never showed up. I buy a bus pass every month for $60.00 and forced to pay for other transportation. The first bus is due at my stop at 8:09 am. The only driver that is on time is the young lady with the orange scarf. NY buses comes every 15 min sometimes 2 at the same time, But I work in NJ, I don’t feel that’s right for an NJ bus company can’t get the residents of NJ to work on time, and back home… Sometimes it’s the same thing on the way home. You should put 2 buses for the am run just in case the other bus get’s in trouble with traffic or whatever. Please fix this problem.
